The family contains 8 upright romans and 8 italics with the following features:
- European accents, Old Style Numbers, Numerators & Fractions.
- Ink traps to avoid press impressing spots & hinting optimized.
- Small X-height with accentuated ascenders and descenders.
Designed by Daniel Hernández Sánchez and Miguel Hernández Montoya between the months of August and December of 2013.
